REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM

Illinois Rell Telephone Co.: Renewal of Authority to 

Construct, Maintain and Operate a Telephone 

System in the City of Chicago. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Office of the Mayor,! 
Chicago, November 5, 1930.] 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without my ap- 
proval, an ordinance passed by your Honorable 
Body at the meeting held July 29, 1930, and 
appearing on pages 3684 to 3690, both inclusive, of 
the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council 
of said date, purporting to authorize Illinois Bell 
Telephone Company to construct and maintain and 
operate a telephone system in the City of Chicago. 

I withhold my approval of the above proposed 
ordinance for the following reasons: 



November 5, 1930. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



3767 



First: I can see little or no benefit to the tele- 
phone subscribers in this proposed ordinance. 

Second: That under this proposed ordinance the 
people of the City of Chicago will lose in compen- 
sation to the City the sum of more than $500,000 
a year. Under the 1907 telephone ordinance the 
City Hall was given free telephone service, and 
various other City offices outside of the City Hall 
were given telephone service at a 25% discount. 
Under the proposed ordinance the City of Chicago 
is called upon to pay for its telephone service and 
allowed a discount of 50% up to December 31, 
1935; from January 1, 1936, to December 31, 1945, 
a discount of 25%. For the balance of the term of 
the ordinance there is to be no discount, but the 
City is required to pay full rates for its telephone 
service. 

Third: In the 1907 telephone ordinance there 
was an agreement between the Telephone Company 
and the City of Chicago whereby the Telephone 
Company agreed to remove and relocate its wires, 
poles, conduits, etc., at its own expense. I find no 
such provision in this proposed ordinance. This 
omission might interfere with the subway and will 
cost the taxpayers of the City millions of dollars. 
I believe that the Telephone Company should be 
required in any new ordinance to agree to relocate 
its wires, poles, conduits, etc., at its own expense 
as it agreed under the 1907 ordinance. 

I, therefore, recommend that the vote by which 
the said ordinance was passed be reconsidered, and 
that the ordinance, together with this communi- 
cation, be referred to the appropriate committee 
of your Honorable Body for further action. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 
Alderman Arvey moved that action on the foregoing 
veto message be temporarily deferred. 
The motion prevailed. 



Veto. 



Gordon Jones (Garwood Speed Boat Co.): Lease of 
Dock and Wharf. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Office of the Mayor,{ 
Chicago, November 5, 1930.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without my ap- 
proval, an ordinance passed by your Honorable 
Body at the meeting held July 29, 1930, and appear- 
ing on page 3652 of the Journal of the Proceedings 
of the City Council of said date, purporting to 
authorize the Commissioner of Compensation' to 
enter into a lease with Gordon Jones (Garwood 
Speed Boat Company) for the westerly forty-five 
(45) lineal feet of the westerly ninety-five (95) 
lineal feet, for a period of five (5) years beginning 
January 1, 1930. 

I withhold my approval of the said ordinance for 
the reason that I am advised by the Commissioner 
of Compensation that this additional space has 
already been leased to another company in accord- 



ance with an ordinance passed by the City Council. 
Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 
Alderman Nelson moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance was passed. 
The motion prevailed: 

Alderman Nelson moved to refer said ordinance to 
the Committee on Finance. 
The motion prevailed. 



Veto. 



Amendment of the Regulations Governing the Widths 
of Rows of Seats in Buildings of Classes IVc and V. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Office of the Mayor,} 
Chicago, November 5, 1930.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without my ap- 
proval, an ordinance passed by your Honorable 
Body at the meeting held on July 29, 1930, and 
appearing on page 3633 of the Journal of the Pro- 
ceedings of the City Council of said date, purport- 
ing to amend Article VII of The Chicago Municipal 
Code of 1922, by striking out Section 551. 

I assume that the reason why the City Council 
saw fit to strike out Section 551 was that said sec- 
tion had been embodied, in a modified form, in 
another proposed ordinance purporting to amend 
Section 807, and passed at the same meeting of the 
City Council. As I am returning the latter ordi- 
nance without my approval, there is no reason for 
repealing Section 551, and I therefore also with- 
hold my approval of the ordinance first above-men- 
tioned. 

I, therefore, recommend that the vote by which 
the said ordinance was passed be reconsidered, and 
that the ordinance, together with this communi- 
cation, be referred to the appropriate committee of 
your Honorable Body for further action. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Nelson moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance amending Section 551 of 
The Chicago Municipal Code of 1922 was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Nelson moved to refer said ordinance to 
the Committee on Buildings and Zoning. 
The motion prevailed.

November 5, 1930, 



OFrifiE op the Mayor,) 
Chicago, November 5, 1930.] 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without my ap- 
proval, an ordinance passed by your Honorable 
Body at the meeting held on July 29, 1930, and 
appearing on page 3634 of the Journal of the Pro- 
ceedings of the City Council of said date, purport- 
ing to amend Article VII of The Chicago Municipal 
Code of 1922, by striking out paragraph (b) of 
Section 592. 

I assume that the reason why the City Council 
saw fit to strike out paragraph (b) of Section 592 
was that said paragraph had been embodied, in a 
modified form, in another proposed ordinance pur- 
porting to amend Section 807, and passed at the 
same meeting of the City Council. As I am return- 
ing the latter ordinance without my approval, there 
is no reason for repealing paragraph (b) of Section 
592, and I therefore also withhold my approval of 
the ordinance first above-mentioned. 

I therefore, recommend that the vote by which 
the said ordinance was passed be reconsidered, and 
that the ordinance, together with this communi- 
cation, be referred to the appropriate committee of 
your Honorable Body for further action. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Wm, Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Nelson moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance amending Section 592 of 
The Chicago Municipal Code of 1922 was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Neleson moved to refer said ordinance to 
the Committee on Buildings and Zoning. 
The motion prevailed. 



Veto. 



The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Office of the Mayor,{ 
Chicago, November 5, 1930.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without my ap- 
proval, an ordinance passed by your Honorable 
Body at the meeting held July ■ 29, 1930, and 
appearing on page 3634 of the Journal of the Pro- 
ceedings of the City Council of said date, purport- 
ing to amend Article XIII, Section 807, by adding 
thereto a paragraph requiring theaters to install 
automatically rising seats, or in lieu thereof to 
place the rows of seats three feet ten inches apart 
instead of two feet eight inches as will be per- 
mitted in case such automatically rising seats are 
installed. 

I withhold my approval for the reason that it 
does not appear to me that this proposed ordinance 
has been sufficiently considered by the City Council. 
There may be differences of opinion as to whether 
seats of the kind prescribed in such ordinance are 
safe, especially for children patronizing theaters. 
I believe this matter ought to be carefully investi- 



(Signed) 



gated by a sub-committee appointed for such pur- 
pose. I am informed that this proposed ordinance 
was not referred to a sub-committee by the com- 
mittee to which the ordinance was referred by the 
City Council, as is the usual custom, and that no 
public hearing or investigation was had prior to 
the recommendation of the ordinance for passage. 

I am further advised by the Corporation Counsel 
that the proposed ordinance in its present form is 
of doubtful validity, since it might be open to the 
charge of making an unreasonable discrimination 
in requiring as much as fifty per cent greater dis- 
tance between rows of seats where some other type 
of seat is used than is required where the above- 
mentioned type is used. 

I, therefore, recommend that the vote by which 
the said ordinance was passed be reconsidered, and 
that the ordinance, together with this communi- 
cation, be referred to the appropriate committee of 
your Honorable Body for further action. 

Yours very truly, 

Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

. Alderman Nelson moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance amending Section 807 of 
The Chicago Municipal Code of 1922 was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Nelson moved to refer said ordinance to 
the Committee on Buildings and Zoning. 
The motion prevailed.

Patrick Sheridan Smith, Esq., City Clerk, City Hall, 
Chicago, Illinois: 

My Dear Mr. Smith — I acknowledge receipt, with 
very deep appreciation, of the embossed copy of the 
resolution adopted by the City Council on July 2, 
1930. Of course, our Committee could not have ac- 
complished the result obtained without the co- 
operation of the City Council and the City officials. 

That the credit of our City is now as good or 
better than the credit of any City in the country is 
evidenced by the fact that all of the tax anticipation 
warrants purchased by the Cook County Taxpayers' 
Warrant Trust have been sold. Their sale enabled 
our Committee to pay back to the subscribers all 
of the money subscribed by them to help the City 
and County, together with 4% % interest thereon. 

I will appreciate it if you will express to the 
Council the sincere thanks of myself and my asso- 
ciates on the Citizens' Committee for the resolution 
of July 2nd and the beautiful copy you have sent 
me. 

With assurance of my esteem and high regard, T

Cordially yours,

Wednesday, 28th, May, 1930.} 
Hon. Patrick S. Smith, City Clerk, Chicago, III: 

My Dear Mr. Smith — It was with genuine surprise 
that I found awaiting me on board the Cunard Liner 
"Samaria" at its Pier on the day of sailing, the 
package containing the engrossed resolution adopted 
by the City Council on the occasion of the departure 
of Mrs. McGaffey and myself for the British Islands. 

Be assured that we are and were duly impressed 
by the signal honor thus conferred upon us, as well 
the beautiful medium upon which .the message is 
transmitted, and return our most sincere thanks for 
the same. 

All the good wishes as to our journey have thus 
far been fully realized. We are today just about 
half-way across, with fine clear weather and buck- 
ing into (as sailors are said to call it) a "spanking" 
breeze, resulting in some pitch and toss of the noble 
vessel as Ave head N. E. for Belfast, the first port of 
call, thence round Ireland to Liverpool. 

With best regards to the Aldermanic Body, His 
Honor the Mayor and Yourself, believe me to be 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) J. Wyatt McGaffey.

Dear Mr. Smith — Will you kindly convey to the 
members of the City Council my deep appreciation of 
their action in adopting the resolution, the engrossed 
copy of which you sent me several days ago. 

The legislation recently passed by the General As- 
sembly should be of permanent, as well as imme-

its preparation and presentation to the Legislature.

lution adopted by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago at its regular meeting held July 2, 1930.

In the Matter of an Easement for the Extension of 

Congress St. across the Proposed Site for the 

New Chicago Post Office. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the ordinance trans- 
mitted therewith, referred to the Committee on Rail- 
way Terminals: 

Treasury Department,! 
Washington, October 29, 1930.} 

The Mayor and Council of the City of Chicago, Chi- 
cago, Illinois: 

Gentlemen — The Act of Congress approved July 
3, 1930, contains an item authorizing the Secretary 
of the Treasury, in his discretion, to acquire a new 
site within the block bounded by Harrison, Van 
Buren and Canal streets and the so-called Van 
Buren Postal Station, subject to the right of the 
grantors to use the sub-surface thereof for rail- 
road purposes and necessary reservations for light 
and air, etc. 

In pursuance of the foregoing authority the 
Treasury Department is negotiating with the 
Terminal Company at Chicago for the acquisition 
of the property referred to, but is advised that the 
ordinance given to the Terminal Company by the 
City Council contains a provision providing a right- 
of-way, or easement, across the Terminal Com- 
pany's property at Congress street, and to conduct 
the necessary viaducts to carry Congress street 
across said property. 

If the Department's information is correct with 
respect to the condition contained in the ordinance 
to the Terminal Company it would preclude the

vesting of title in the United States unless the 
present Act of Congress were amended, or steps 
taken by the City Council to eliminate from the 
ordinance in question the condition referred to re- 
specting Congress street. 

The Department desires to proceed with the 
utmost expedition in having constructed the new 
Post Office building in Chicago, and considerable 
delay would necessarily ensue in obtaining authority 
from Congress to accept title to the property with 
the restriction subject to the City's right as con- 
tained in the ordinance. 

Inasmuch as it is the purpose of the Government 
to construct the new Post Office building in such a 
manner as to leave adequate arched passageway 
through the building for the use of the public for 
street purposes, at any time that the City of Chi- 
cago opens Congress street as a thoroughfare, the 
Treasury Department begs to submit herewith a 
request that the City Council take such steps as 
may be necessary for the abrogation of the con- 
dition hereinbefore referred to in the ordinance. 

For the convenience of the City Council there is 
respectfully submitted a copy of draft of the pro- 
posed ordinance. 

Respectfully, 

(Signed) Frey K. Heath, 

Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. 



Request to Join a "Back to Prosperity" Movement. 

The City Clerk presented a resolution adopted by the 
City Commission of the City of Grand Rapids, Michigan, 
petitioning municipal governments to join with them in

Chicago Builders of Los Angeles Sanitarium: Tag Day. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Chicago Builders of Los Angeles Sanitarium.) 
Chicago, November 3, 1930.} 

Patrick Sheridan Smith, City Clerk, City Hall, Chi- 
cago, Illinois: 

Dear Sir — On behalf of our Association which has 
a membership of 800 women, we are asking you for 
humanity's sake to permit a tag day by our asso- 
ciation among our own people to take place in the 
Lawndale district and the Northwest section of Chi- 
cago on the third Sunday in November. 

The purpose is to raise funds for our Chicago 
people suffering from Tuberculosis so that we can 
send them to the Los Angeles sanitarium in an 
effort at helping them recover their health. This 
sanitarium is a special home for Chicagoans and 
thus saves the City of Chicago the expense of tak- 
ing care of these unfortunate ones. 

We furnish these sufferers with transportation to 
Los Angeles and take care of their dependents here 
until they recover. When completely cured we pay 
their return transportation. 

Thanking you sincerely for anything you may 
possibly do for us, we are 



(Signed-

Mrs. F. Tare, 
Vice-President.

1st. The timber shall be placed in an air-tight 
cylinder and live steam admitted for not longer 
than an hour at a pressure of not to exceed twenty 
(20) pounds per square inch at a corresponding 
temperature of two hundred fifty-eight (258) 
degrees Fahrenheit depending upon the degree of 
seasoning of material and the period of the year 
in which the treatment occurs. During the pro- 
cess of steaming, a vent shall be kept open in the 
cylinder to permit the escape of water, air and 
condensed steam. 

2nd. At the expiration of the steam period 
when the cylinder is thoroughly drained, a vacuum 
of not less than twenty-four (24) inches of mer- 



cury shall be maintained for a period of two hours 
during which time the temperature in the cylin- 
der must be kept above the boiling point of water 
at the existing vacuum. 

Paragraph 11. After the seasoning or steaming 
period, the timber shall be subjected to air pressure 
■of sufficient intensity and duration to accomplish 
the final retension of the specified amount of oil. 
The oil shall then be introduced, air pressure being 
maintained constant until the cylinder is filled. The 
oil shall then be pressed from the working tank 
into the wood in a quantity sufficient, in the judg- 
ment of the Board of Local Improvements, to leave 
the required retention of oil per cubic feet of tim- 
ber. The timber shall be treated by the "Empty- 
cell Initial Air Process" and on completion of the 
treatment, the timber shall contain not less then ten 
(10') pounds of oil per cubic foot of wood. The 
amount of oil retained shall be calculated on the 
basis of oil at one hundred (100) degrees Fahren- 
heit, checking the working tank gauge before and 
after treatment. The oil should permeate all the 
sapwood and as much of the hear.twood as is practic- 
able. Penetration shall be determined by represent- 
ative increment borer cores. All surfaces of creo- 
soted timber, when cut after treatment, shall require 
two thorough applications of creosote oil before the 
timber is placed in the structure, the oil to be 
heated to a liquid condition and applied when hot. 

Paragraph 12. Ten (10) new brick catch basins 
shall be built, trapped and connected to the existing 
sewer in South Ashland avenue, said sewer extend- 
ing along the west line of Sec. 29. T. 39 N., R. 14, E.,

Paragraph 15a. All concrete materials shall be 
mixed for a period of one and one-half (1%) 
minutes for each batch in a rotary batch mixer with 
sufficient water to produce a uniform mass of such 
consistency that it will flow sluggishly into the 
forms and around the metal reinforcement, where 
the same is used, and which at the same time can 
be conveyed to the place of final deposit without 
separation of the ingredients. The maximum slump 
allowed for concrete in the reinforced concrete 
structures shall be four (4) inches and the maximum 
slump allowed for concrete in the pavement foun- 
dation and sidewalks on cinder foundation and com- 
bined curbs and gutters on cinder foundation shall 
be two (2) inches. The method of making slump 
tests shall conform to the Tentative Method of Test 
for Consistency of Portland Cement Concrete of the 
A. S. T. M. as Revised in 1926. All concrete shall be 
well spaded and worked around the reinforcing bars 
and coarse aggregate shall be forced away from the 
forms of exposed surfaces so as to make a facing of 
mortar next to the forms. Concrete that has 
partially hardened shall not be deposited in the 
work. Before placing concrete in girders, the forms 
shall be filled with mortar to a depth of two (2) 
inches and before placing concrete in the roadway 



and sidewalk slabs, a one-half (%) inch layer of 
mortar shall be placed in the bottom of the road- 
way and sidewalk slab forms. 

Paragraph 16a. The surfaces of concrete exposed 
to premature drying shall be covered and kept wet 
for a period of at least seven (7) days after pouring.

Paragraph 17a. All forms for concrete work shall 
be of sound lumber, free from loose knots, shakes 
or splits, tongued and 1 grooved and dressed to a uni- 
form width and thickness. Forms shall be sub- 
stantially built so as to prevent deflection or move- 
ment during concreting. They shall be sufficiently 
tight to prevent leakage of mortar and shall be con- 
structed in such a manner that the concrete work 
shall have smooth surfaces and shall conform to 
the dimensions indicated on the drawings. Forms 
shall be so made that all exposed corners of the 
girders and conduit encasement in the reinforced 
concrete structures, except around the moulding on 
the sidewalk girders, shall be chamfered one (1) 
inch. Temporary openings shall be provided where 
necessary, to facilitate cleaning and inspection im- 
mediately before depositing concrete. All surfaces 
of the forms in contact with the concrete shall be 
completely covered with one (1) coat of paraffin oil 
before concreting is commenced. Forms shall not 
be removed from the concrete until it is sufficiently 
hard to permit of this being done without affecting 
the safety of the concrete. 
Openings in Abutment Wall.

Paragraph 19a. On each structure, the entire 
interior surface of each wing wall above footings, 
the entire rear surface of each abutment above foot- 
ings and the entire upper surface of each slab over 
which paving, sidewalks and curb and gutter are to 
be placed, including the vertical surfaces at the curb 
lines, at the hack of sidewalks and in the roadway, 
shall be treated with three (3) coats of an iron 
composition waterproofing properly hydrated and 
applied by using a brush. The second coat shall be 
applied immediately after the application of the 
first coat after which a period of at least twenty- 
four (24) hours shall elapse before the application 
of the third (3rd) coat to allow time for oxidation 
of the iron in the compound. 

Paragraph 20a. The first coat shall consist of a 
mixture of iron composition composed of ninety- 
five (95) per cent pure iron, ninety (90) per cent 
unoxidized, and water, the second coat shall consist 
of two (2) parts of said iron composition and one 
(1) part Portland cement and water, the third coat 
shall consist of one (1) part of sand, two (2) parts 
said iron composition and three (3) parts of sand 
and water, the sand to be fine aggregate 'A". 

Paragraph 21a. Before any waterproofing coating 
is applied, all surfaces shall be inspected and all 
defective concrete, honeycomb and faults shall be 
removed and patched and the entire area of each 
face shall be brought to a smooth and uniform sur- 
face.

Paragraph 23a. The exposed faces of the roadway 
and sidewalk slabs, and sides and bottoms of girders 
of the reinforced concrete structures and outside 
faces of abutment and wing walls above the surface 
of the ground or fill which are not covered by pre- 
cast stone veneer shall receive a rubbed finish. 
After the forms have been removed all joint marks, 
projections and inequalities shall be chipped off and 
all voids filled with a mortar of the same pro- 
portion of cement and sand as that of the concrete. 
After this mortar has set the surface shall be 
thoroughly wetted with water and while wet, rubbed 
with a carborundum or equal brick until a smooth 
uniform surface results. No mortar or cement shall 
be applied except to fill distinct voids in the sur- 
faces. Uneven places shall be smoothed by rubbing 
down and not by plastering. The surface shall be 
kept moist and protected from rapid drying for not 
less than three days. 

Precast Concrete Stone Work. 

Paragraph 24a. The term, pre-cast concrete stone 
shall be understood to mean a building stone manu- 
factured as herein set forth. A ballustrade of pre- 
cast concrete stone shall be placed on the reinforced 
concrete structures as shown on the drawings. A 
veneer of pre-cast concrete stone shall be placed on 
the ends of abutment walls and on the faces of the 
wing walls where' shown on the drawings.

be made of Portland cement and aggregate as herein 
specified. The proportions of cement and dry aggre- 
gate in the mixture shall not exceed one (1) cubic 
foot of cement to three (3) cubic feet of dry aggre- 
gate. The aggregate shall be granite crushed from 
stone selected for uniform color and hardness. It 
shall be clean and free from any minerals or foreign 
matter which might cause subsequent staining, dis- 
coloration or disintegration. It shall be separated 
into at least three distinct gradings according to size 
and proportioned by weight to insure a uniform pre- 
cast concrete stone. Aggregate shall be used dry or 
approved facilities shall be used to correct for 
moisture content in the aggregate. Water for mix- 
ing shall be measured accurately and the same pro- 
portion of water to cement used throughout the 
work. The cement and aggregate shall be mixed in 
a batch mixer for not less than ten (10) minutes 
after all materials and water are in the mixer.

crete stone shall be reinforced with steel reinforc- 
ing bars as specified of the sizes indicated on the 
drawings. Lewis holes shall be provided in each 
stone weighing one hundred (100) pounds or more. 

Paragraph 26a. The pre-cast concrete stone shall 
be cast and cured under shelter at a uniform 
temperature in excess of 55 degrees Fahrenheit 
until each stone is thoroughly seasoned and shall 
have at the age of twenty-eight (28) days, or less, 
a compressive strength of 10,000 pounds per square 
inch of cross sectional area. Tests for compressive 
strength shall be made on 4-inch by 4-inch by 
4-inch cubes made of the same concrete and under 
the same conditions as the pre-cast concrete stone. 
The pre-cast concrete stone shall be made without 
the use of integral or external waterproofing com- 
pounds and after casting and curing shall not absorb 



more than 1%% of its dry weight of moisture. The 
test for absorption shall be made by drying a 4-inch 
by 4-inch by 4-inch cube of the concrete to a con- 
stant weight at a temperature of 225 degrees 
Fahrenheit and then immersing in water for a 
period of forty-eight (48) hours after which the 
cube shall be weighed and the weight of the ab- 
sorbed moisture computed. 

Paragraph 27a. The exposed surfaces of the pre- 
cast concrete stone shall be machine honed and all 
baluster spindles shall be lathe turned. All exposed 
surfaces shall be true and free from projections or 
depressions. All edges must be sharp and true and 
all moldings, if necessary, shall be re-cut to insure 
sharpness of detail. 

Paragraph 28a. Before setting, the pre-cast con- 
crete stone shall be scrubbed clean with soap powder 
and water, using fibre brushes for the scrubbing, 
then rinsed with clean water until all soap is re- 
moved. Immediately before setting, all pre-cast 
concrete stone shall be sponged and drenched on all 
sides with clean water. The entire back face of all 
veneer stone shall be plastered with not less than a 
one-half (%) inch coat of setting mortar before 
placing. All beds and vertical joints shall be one- 
quarter (%) inch in width except where otherwise 
shown and all joints shall be raked out three- 
quarters (%) inch to allow for pointing. The pre- 
cast concrete stone shall be anchored as shown on 
the drawings. Mortar for setting and pointing shall 
be as specified. All face joints shall be brushed out 
clean and after a thorough wetting shall be pointed 
up with tooled joints.

SPECIFICATIONS. 

Design. 

Paragraph la. The pile trestle is designed to 
carry, in addition to the dead load weight of the 
structure itself, a live load consisting of trucks and 
a uniform load, with impact added to said live load 
in accordance with the Standard Specifications 
Doveming the Construction, Repairs, and Rebuilding 
of Viaducts over Railroad Tracks, published in 1917 
by the Department of Public Works of the City of 
Chicago. The method of applying said live loads 
and impact, the workmanship and materials, and the 
allowable unit stresses for the -various classes of 
materials conform to the above Standard Specifica- 
tions unless otherwise specified. 

Timber, Lumber and Piles. 

Paragraph 2a. All timber and lumber designated 
in this ordinance as Yellow Pine shall conform to 
the classification and specifications of the Southern 
Pine Association for "Dense Southern Yellow Pine" 
as in force at the date of this ordinance. All Yellow 
Pine Timber and Lumber, except Sidewalk Flooring, 
shall be creosoted. 

Paragraph 3a. Piles shall be of "Oak", "Cypress", 
"Tamarack", "Norway Pine", "Yellow Pine", or other 
kind of wood approved by the Board and shall be 
creosoted. They shall be sound, straight, close 
grained and free from any injurious defects. Piles 
having bends in two directions or short bends will 



not be accepted. A straight line from center of butt 
to center of tip shall lie within the body of pile. 
Piles shall be cut above the ground swell. They 
must have a uniform taper from butt to tip. The 
minimum diameter at the tip measured below the 
bark shall be eight (8) inches on lengths thirty-six 
(36) feet and under and seven (7) inches on lengths 
thirty-eight (38) feet and under fifty (50) feet. 
The minimum diameter at one-quarter the length 
from the butt shall be eleven (11) inches. The 
maximum diameter at the butt shall be eighteen 
(18) inches and at the tip twelve (12) inches. The 
minimum diameter of the butt shall be fourteen 
(14 1 ) inches. All knots shall be trimmed close to 
the body of the pile. Piles to be creosoted shall be 
peeled soon after cutting. Butts, of piles shall be 
chamfered so as to enter bonnet of pile driver. Fin- 
ished heads of piles shall be cut square with axis 
of pile. If re-sawing is necessary, it shall be done 
before treatment. The length of each pile shall 
be cut in the butt of the pile with a steel die in 
letters, one-half (%) inch deep. All accepted piles 
shall be stamped in the butt with the City In- 
spector's stamp. If necessary, piles shall be pro- 
vided with standard pile shoes of the kind and type 
approved by the Board of Local Improvements. 

Paragraph 4a. The creosote oil to be used for 
creosoting shall be that recommended by the Ameri- 
can Wood Preservers' Association and commercially 
known as "Grade 1" in their Standard Specifications 
for Creosote Oil for Ties and Structural Timber. 

Paragraph 5a. All piles shall be driven by a 
steam hammer to "practical refusal" which shall be 
understood to mean that the average penetration for 
each of the last twenty (20) blows of the hammer 
shall not exceed that determined by the following 
formula as applied to piles driven by steam ham- 
mers: 

WxH 
S = 0.1 

30,000 

Where S = average penetration of the pile in inches 
for each of the last twenty (20) blows of the ham- 
mer; W = weight of the falling hammer in pounds; 
H — height of fall of the hammer in feet. In case 
this result cannot be obtained without injury to the 
pile or on account of the impracticable lengths of 
pile required, the number of piles shall be increased 
until the maximum computed load on any pile shall 
not exceed that determined by the following formula 
as applied to piles driven by steam hammers: 



1.5 x WxH 



P=- 



S plus 0.1 



Where P = allowable load in pounds on each pile: 
S = average penetration of the pile in inches for 
each of the last twenty (20) blows of the hammer; 
W = weight of the falling hammer in pounds; H = 
height of fall of the hammer in feet. 

Paragraph 6a. Material to be creosoted shall be 
restricted, in any one charge, to woods into which 
approximately equal quantities of preserving fluid 
can be injected and shall consist of pieces approxi- 
mately equal in size and sapwood content. Butts 
of piles shall be chamfered and adzed and timbers 
shall be sawed to lengths with an accuracy of one- 
eighth (%) of an inch and shall be framed, scarfed 
and bored before treatment. If the timber has not 
been sufficiently air-seasoned, it shall be subjected 
before treatment to the following process for the 
removal of sap and moisture: 

1st. The timber shall be placed in an air-tight

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



cylinder and live steam admitted for not longer 
than an hour at a pressure of not to exceed 
twenty (20) pounds per square inch and a cor- 
responding temperature of two hundred fifty- 
eight (258) degrees Fahrenheit depending upon 
the degree of seasoning of material and the period 
of the year in which the treatment occurs. Dur- 
ing the process of steaming, a vent shall be kept 
open in the cylinder to permit the escape of water, 
air and condensed steam. 

2nd. At the expiration of the steaming period 
when the cylinder is thoroughly drained, a vacuum 
in the cylinder of not less than twenty-four (241 
inches of mercury shall be maintained for a period 
of two hours during which time the temperature 
in the cylinder must be kept above the boiling 
point of water at the existing vacuum. 

Paragraph 7a. After the seasoning or steaming 
period, the timber shall be subjected to air pressure 
of sufficient intensity and duration to accomplish the 
final retention of the specified amount of oil. The 
.oil shall then be introduced, air pressure being main- 
tained constant until the cylinder is filled. The oil 
shall then be pressed from the working tank into the 
wood in a quantity sufficient, in the judgment of 
the Board of Local Improvements, to leave the re- 
quired retention of oil per cubic foot of timber. The 
timber shall be treated by the "Empty-cell Initial 
Air Process" and on completion of the treatment, 
the timber shall contain not less than ten (10) 
pounds of oil per cubic foot of wood. The amount 
of oil retained shall be calculated on the basis of 
oil at one hundred (100) degrees Fahrenheit mini- 
mum, checking the working tank gauge before and 
after treatment. The oil should permeate all of the 
sapwood and as much of the heartwood as is prac- 
ticable. Penetration shall be determined by repre- 
sentative increment borer cores. All surfaces of 
creosoted timber, when cut after treatment, shall re- 
ceive two thorough applications of creosote oil be- 
fore the timber is placed in the structure, the oil 
to be heated to a liquid condition and applied while 
hot.

Whereas, Until recently a watchman was em- 
ployed by said railroad to guard this crossing but 
for some unknown reason is not stationed there 
any longer, the services of said watchman being 
necessary; and 

Whereas, The crossing is now without any pro-

human life; therefore, it is hereby 

Ordered, That the Corporation Counsel be and he

Whereas, By order of the City Council on July

Proceedings of these dates, the City of Chicago 
entered into contracts which were accepted in 
writing with the Chicago & Western Indiana Rail- 
road Company, granting them certain right to 
maintain and operate certain tracks across the 
streets and alleys of the City of Chicago in the 
vicinity of Plymouth court, Polk and Taylor 
streets; and 

Whereas, At the expiration of said ordinance the 
Commissioner of Public Works has as provided in 
said ordinances notified the said Chicago & Western 
Indiana Railroad Company to vacate said streets 
and alleys as a condition precedent to the granting 
of certain ordinances and contracts, the said Chi- 
cago & Western Indiana Railroad Company would 
agree in writing that they would never take action 
in either state or federal courts or commissions, 
tending to delay the vacation of such streets and 
alleys as provided in said contract; and 

Whereas, The Chicago & Western Indiana Rail- 
road Company has in violation of their agreement 
refused to vacate the streets and alleys and has 
taken action before a state commission and has 
asserted that the said ordinances and contracts are 
a nullity and that the City of Chicago is without 
right and power to grant said ordinances for the 
use and occupancy of any streets and alleys. 

Whereas, By such action in violation of a 
written ordinance and agreement where the Chi- 
cago & Western Indiana Railroad Company and 
those to whom they have leased property by reason 
of the license are now asserting that they are 
entitled to be on the streets by reason of the 
grants but are under no obligation to vacate by 
reason of the provision in said ordinance; there- 
fore, be it 

Resolved, That the question of the rights of the 
City of Chicago to enter into such ordinance and

contracts be entered into by the City of Chicago 
with any railroad company occupying or desiring 
to occupy its streets and alleys until such time as 
the Courts and Illinois Commerce Commission be- 
fore whom such question is now pending, shall 
have passed upon the rights of the City of Chicago 
to make such grants, and that all action upon all 
applications now pending or presented hereafter 
shall be deferred until the decision of said Illinois 
Commerce Commission and the Courts on the 
question of the right of the City of Chicago to 
control its streets and alleys; be it further 

Resolved, That it be the sense of this body that 
the Corporation Counsel should at once proceed 
against the bond companies indemnifying this 
agreement for the collection of moneys now due 
the City of Chicago, providing for the forfeiture of 
these contracts by the Chicago & Western Indiana 
Railroad Company and the City of Chicago, in 
which the U. S. B. F. & G. Company are the 
indemnifiers.

as to the rights of the City of Chicago, and to refer the 
remaining portion of said resolution to the Committee 
on Local Industries, Streets and Alleys, and to the Com- 
mittee on Railway Terminals, for separate consideration.

Proceedings of these dates, the City of Chicago 
entered into contracts which were accepted in 
writing with the Chicago & Western Indiana Rail- 
road Company, granting them certain right to 
maintain and operate certain tracks across the 
streets and alleys of the City of Chicago in the 
vicinity of Plymouth court, Polk and Taylor streets; 
and 

Whereas, At the expiration of said ordinance 
the Commissioner of Public Works has as provided 
in said ordinances notified the said Chicago & 
Western Indiana Railroad Company to vacate said 
streets and alleys as a condition precedent to the 
granting of certain ordinances and contracts, the 
said Chicago & Western Indiana Railroad Company 
would agree in writing that they would never take 
action in either state or federal courts or commis- 
sions, tending to delay the vacation of such streets 
and alleys as provided in said contract; and 

Whereas, The Chicago & Western Indiana Rail- 
road Company has in violation of their agreement 
refused to vacate the streets and alleys and has 
taken action before a state commission and has 
asserted that the said ordinances and contracts are 
a nullity and that the City of Chicago is without 
right and power to grant said ordinances for the 
use and occupancy of any streets and alleys. 

Whereas, By such action in violation of a writ- 
ten ordinance and agreement where the Chicago & 
Western Indiana Railroad' Company and those to 
whom they have leased property by reason of the 
license are now asserting that they are entitled to 
be on the streets by reason of the grants but are 
under no obligation to vacate by reason of the 
provision in said ordinance; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the question of the rights of the

CITY CLERK. 



Armistice Day Proclamation. 

The City Clerk presented the following proclamation, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

PROCLAMATION. 

November 11, 1930, will mark the twelfth anni- 
versary of Armistice Day, that eventful day in 1918 
when hostilities ceased between the warring nations; 
when the torn and bleeding legions, which had been 
engaged in a carnage of death and destruction for 
four weary years, laid down their arms to take up 
the constructive activities of peace; when the 
promise of the Scriptures was fulfilled, which pro- 
phesied: "And He shall judge among the nations 
and shall rebuke many people and they shall beat 
their swords into plowshares, and their spears into 
pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against 
nation, neither shall they learn war any more". 

Whereas, The participation of America and the 
sacrifice and heroism of her men and women aided 
materially in bringing the war to a victorious close; 
and 

Whereas, The victorious conclusion of hostilities 
brought joy to America and kindled the hope that 
war might forever pass from the earth: 

Therefore, I, Wm. Hale Thompson, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, in view of the deliverance of the 
American people from the mighty scourge of war, do 
commend to the people of Chicago a sincere and 
appropriate celebration of Armistice Day on Tues- 
day, November 11, 1930, as an earnest of our grati- 
tude to Almighty God for this manifestation of 
Divine Favor. 

In memory of the Nation's soldier dead, not only 
of the late war but of all wars in which our sons of 
America, native and adopted, have marched to vie-

Estimates of Revenues and Expenditures for the 
Year 1931. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the estimates submitted 
therewith, referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department op Finance,) 
Chicago, November 17, 1930. J 

The Honorable, The Mayor and Aldermen, in City 
Council Assembled, Chicago, III.: 

Dear Sirs — In compliance with Section 43 of The 
Chicago Municipal Code of 1922, and the Act of the 
Legislature of the State of Illinois, passed in the spe- 
cial session of 1930, the Comptroller herewith sub- 
mits the "Departmental and Comptroller's Estimates" 
for the fiscal year 1931, together with "Estimated 
Balance Sheets", and "Estimate of Resources Avail- 
able for Appropriation", for the City's General Cor- 
porate Purposes Fund, Water Fund, Vehicle Tax 
Fund, and Sinking Fund for Bonds and Interest. 

The Comptroller's Estimates indicate the total 
limitation of appropriations which in his opinion 
should be made to each department from the re- 
sources available for appropriation for 1931 from 
the Corporate Purposes Fund. The Comptroller's 
recommendations are informatory only and he ap- 
preciates that the totals shown will probably be in- 
sufficient to furnish the maximum of service that 
should be furnished by certain departments. How- 
ever, since the resources that are now indicated as 
being available to pay for the obligations we will 
incur during 1931 are not sufficient to permit in- 
creasing such services, it stands to reason, even if 
the law did not so require it, that appropriations 
should be made only to the extent of such resources. 

Due to shortness of time available under the new 
law, the Comptroller could not hold any hearings 
with the departments on their estimates. 

This is the first Budget under the new law that 
requires appropriations to be limited to the esti- 
mated resources that will be received from taxes 
and miscellaneous revenues during the appropriation 
year. 

For your further information, the Comptroller de- 
sires to advise that during the year 1931 there prob- 
ably will be two periods during which a shortage of 
actual cash will prevail in the Corporate Fund: the 
first period being from the first part of the year 
until such time as the 1931 Tax Levy ordinance has 



become a law; and the second period being some 
time between September, 1931 and January, 1932. 
The second period will come after we have used all 
of the City's borrowing power in Tax Warrants 
against the 1931 taxes, including the borrowing from 
the Working Cash Fund, until the 1930 taxes begin 
coming in in sufficient amount to retire the 1930 
Tax Warrants and to permit the reimbursement to 
the Working Cash Fund of loans made during this 
year on account of 1930 taxes. 

The Comptroller also desires to notify the City 
Council that the Estimated Resources Available for 
Appropriation are based upon the ledger accounts 
of the City for the years 1928 and 1929, with the 
understanding that the reserves for Loss & Cost in 
collection of 1928 and 1929 Taxes has been figured 
upon an estimate of 10%. If the Loss & Cost in 
collection of 1928 and 1929 Taxes should exceed 
10%, it naturally follows that the Estimate of Re- 
sources submitted herewith will be reduced by such 
excess of Loss & Cost. 

It will be noted that the Water Fund Resources 
show a considerable reduction in the amount avail- 
able for appropriation in comparison with the ap- 
propriation made during 1930 from this fund. This 
can be accounted by the fact that we shall finish up 
the year 1930 with an estimated deficit of $2,056,- 
225.62 in this fund; and even if the Supreme Court 
should hold the Water Certificates as legal, the 
money made available by the sale of such Water 
Certificates can be used only for specific purposes 
perscribed in the ordinance authorizing the issuance 
of such Certificates. 

The Comptroller further desires to state that he 
believes every department should be thoroughly ad- 
vised of the fact that no hope for any increase in 
Valuations for 1929 and 1930 appears probable at 
this time, which means that we cannot expect any 
increase of Revenue from Taxes during those two 
years. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) George K. Schmidt, ■ 

Comptroller. 



Duplicate Payrolls.

tion, which was, together with the duplicate payrolls 
submitted therewith, ordered placed on file:

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of

Gentlemen— I am transmitting herewith copy of 
an opinion given by me to Alderman Albert J. Horan, 
pursuant to his request, concerning- the eligibility 
of aldermen recently elected fo other offices to con- 
tinue to serve as members of the City Council. 

Very truly yours,

Department op Law,} 
Chicago, November 12, 1930.} 
Hon. Samuel A. Ettelson, Corporation Counsel: 

Dear Sir— On the question whether certain alder- 
men recently elected to other offices can lawfully 
continue to serve as members of the City Council, 
notwithstanding their assumption of the duties of 
their new offices, I beg to submit the following: 

Article 12, Part 3, Section 2 of the Cities and 
Villages Act (Smith-Hurd's Statute 1929, Chapter 
24, Section 179) reads as follows : 

"No member of the City Council shall at the 
same time hold any other civil service office 
under the Federal, State or City government ex- 
cept in the National Guard or as a Master in 
Chancery or Notary Public, and except such 
honorary offices as go by appointment without 
compensation." 

In an opinion by the Corporation Counsel under 
date of December 14, 1914, this statute was con- 
strued to mean that an alderman is forbidden to 
hold any other civil office and specifically, it was 
held that an alderman accepting' the office as 
Trustee of The Sanitary District of Chicago thereby 
vacated his office of alderman. The opinion stated: 
"We are inclined to believe that it was the 
intention of the legislature to prohibit any alder- 
man from holding any other civil office created 
by the statutes or by the laws of the State of 
Illinois." 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



November 24, 1930. 






i 






It is an elementary rule of the common law that 
the acceptance by an officer of an incompatible 
office ipso facto vacates the office previously held. 
In 46 Corpus Juris, page 947, we read: 

"The acceptance of an incompatible office by 
the incumbent of another office is regarded as a 
resignation or vacation of the first office. This 
rule is applied even where the second office is 
inferior to the first." 

It has also been held that where a statute or 
constitution forbids the holding of two offices 
simultaneously they are thereby made incompatible 
in law whether they are in fact incompatible or 
not. 

In 46 Corpus Juris, page 947, we read: 

"Where it is the holding of two state offices at 
the same time which is forbidden by the consti- 
tution or statutes, a statutory incompatibility is 
created similar in effect to the common law, and 
in the case of the latter, it is well settled ac- 
ceptance of a second office of the kind prohibited 
operates ipso facto absolutely to vacate the first." 

In the comparatively recent case of Fekete vs 
East St. Louis, 315 111. 358, the Supreme Court of 
this state laid down the strict rule that where the 
holding of two offices simultaneously is forbidden 
by law, the acceptance of the second office ipso 
facto vacates the first, In that case, the Supreme 
Court had occasion to construe the following pro- 
vision in Section 3 of Article 4 of the Constitution: 

"Nor shall any person holding any office of 
honor or profit under any foreign government or 
under the government of the United States (ex- 
cept Post Masters whose annual compensation 
does not exceed the sum of $300.00), hold any 
office of honor or profit under the authority of 
this state." 

In that case, the city attorney of East St. Louis 
had accepted a commission in the United States 
Army during the War and the Supreme Court held 
that the acceptance of that office ipso facto vacated 
his office as city attorney. The court said: 

"The constitutional question we are confronted 
with is whether after plaintiff became city at- 
torney which is an office of honor and profit, he 
accepted an office of honor and profit from the 
United States. If he did, it . is unimportant 
whether the duties of the two offices were incom- 
patible or not. The prohibition is against one 
man holding an office of honor or profit under 
the United States and another office of honor or 
profit under the authority of this state. * * * 
His acceptance of the former office was a con- 
structive resignation or abandonment of the 
latter." 

I believe this decision is complete controlling in 
the present case. As heretofore held by this De- 
partment (Opinions Corporation Counsel, Vol. 8, 
page 219), the statute forbids an alderman to hold 
at the same time any other civil office (the term 
"civil service" being used in the broad and strictly 
proper sense of the entire public service, and not 
in the narrow and less accurate sense of the "classi- 
fied civil service", none of the offices mentioned — 
alderman, master in chancery, notary public, etc. — 
being civil service offices in the latter sense). 
Under the ruling of the Supreme Court in the 
Fekete case, supra, it would seem that the ac- 
ceptance by an alderman of any other office, abso- 



lutely vacates his office as alderman. This would 
seem to be conclusive of the question. 
See also the following cases: 

Dickson vs People, 17 111. 191. 
People vs Hanifan, 96 111. 420. 
Packingham vs Harper, 66 111. App. 96. 
People vs Haas, 145 111. App. 283. 

For the reasons above stated, I am of the opinion 
that when the aldermen recently elected to other 
offices shall qualify for their new offices, such act 
on their part will ipso facto vacate their offices as 
aldermen of the City of Chicago. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Carl J. Appell,

Assistant Corporation Counsel. 



In the Matter of the Early Publication of a Revised 
Municipal Code. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Law Department,) 
Chicago, November 8, 1930.] 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The work of publishing the revised 
edition of the Municipal Code, which was authorized 
and directed by your honorable body, has so far 
progressed that the new code is now practically all 
in type and ready to be printed. It is the intention 
to begin printing same immediately after the pas- 
sage of the Annual Appropriation Ordinance of 193J. 
and to finish the same within a month after that. 

This notice is given for the purpose of affording 
your honorable body an opportunity of making such 
changes as it sees fit to make therein prior to the 
printing of same. Such changes as are submitted to 
us not later than December 15, 1930, can be made 
without serious interference with our present plans, 
but any changes that are contemplated which are 
not submitted by the date just mentioned will re- 
sult in delay and loss on account of extra cost of 
preparation and printing. 

We will not recognize requests from the various 
departments for changes or alterations unless the 
same are authorized by the City Council, and ask 
that the heads of departments will take notice of 
this communication in order that they may guide 
themselves accordingly. The only authorized ordi- 
nances that can be properly incorporated in the 
new code are those that have been duly passed by 
the City Council, and any attempt on the part of 
any officer of the city to secure changes not duly 
authorized by the council can only result in con- 
fusion and delay. 

Yours truly,

Chicago, November 12, 1930.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On November 11, 1929, your honor- 
able body passed an ordinance amending Section 32 
of The Chicago Municipal Code of 1922 in such a 
way that the provision which limited the city's de- 
posits in the active bank to $2,000,000.00 was elimi- 
nated. This was done because experience had 
demonstrated that since the city's deposits had 
grown to such large proportions as now prevail such 
a limitation could not be observed without extreme 
difficulty and considerable risk. There is a similar 
provision, however, contained in Section 80 of the 
Code which has not been amended, and on account 
of this the intentions of the Council of taking off 
this limitation cannot be made effective. 

We are informed that both the Comptroller and 
Treasurer regard a provision which interferes with 
the free and prompt deposit of funds in such active 
banks as are regarded as safe depositaries as fraught 
with danger to the City's interests. 

Therefore, at the request of said officers, we have 
prepared draft of an amendment to Section 80 of 
the Code which will eliminate the said objection- 
able provision and make said section harmonize with 
the amended Section 32. 

We forward copies of said draft of an amended 
Section 80 herewith for the consideration of your 
honorable body. 

Yours truly,

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

I hereby submit in triplicate an ordinance mak- 
ing appropriations of funds provided for by the 






3934 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO.

issue of bonds authorized by the election of Novem- 
ber 4, 1930, for the payment of the cost of con- 
struction of a bridge in North State street and 
approaches thereto, including the acquisition of 
necessary land in connection therewith and provid- 
ing for the payment thereof; for the payment of 
the cost of construction of a bridge in South 
Halsted street and approaches thereto and for the 
payment of the cost of reconstruction of various 
existing bridges. 

It is of vital importance that the plans for the 
construction of these two new bridges and for the 
reconstruction of the various existing bridges be 
started immediately so that in the case of the 
State Street Bridge no delay will be occasioned in 
the progress of the construction of the subway, and 
in the case of South Halsted street where the 
condition of the present bridge is such as to 
materially restrict its use and so that some relief 
can be offered to this congested thoroughfare and in 
the case of the reconstruction of various existing 
bridges so that this work may be started imme- 
diately both to correct the unsafe conditions exist- 
ing on these bridges and to relieve the unemploy- 
ment situation in Chicago as this work will involve 
employment of a large force of men and can be 
started immediately and carried along continuously 
during the entire winter, except extreme bad 
weather periods. 

I, therefore, recommend the passage of said ordi- 
nance so that the work provided for may be carried 
on without delay. 

Yours very truly,

Commissioner of Public Works.
